For almost two centuries, Jaeger LeCoultre has commanded a reputation for elegant and innovative luxury watches. Each Jaeger LeCoultre timepiece is manufactured with the highest attention to detail in a workshop nestled among Switzerland’s Jura Mountains. The brand's diverse offerings are sure to satisfy the refined taste of watch enthusiasts seeking innovative features, classic aesthetics, and durable pieces capable of withstanding life’s challenges.
Jaeger LeCoultre has built its reputation on innovative, luxury watches that merge elegant aesthetics with sporting functionality. For instance, the sports-inspired Reverso line has a vintage, Art Deco-inspired elegance and a clever rotating case that protects the crystal against impact. Jaeger LeCoultre's minimalist Master line provides a striking slim watch case without sacrificing water-resistance or durability. Its "1,000 Hour Test" ensures that every aspect meets Jaeger LeCoultre’s exacting quality standards.
Swiss-born Antoine LeCoultre founded Jaeger LeCoultre in 1833. LeCoultre propelled the watchmaking industry forward by inventing the first instrument capable of measuring microns. Over time, Jaeger LeCoultre became known for the founder’s pioneering spirit.
In 1928, the brand debuted its best-known innovation, the self-winding Atmos clock. A blend of gases sealed within the glass capsule of each clock winds the mechanism using energy generated from minute changes in the ambient temperature. The intricacies of each mechanism are visible through a box of scratch-resistant glass or sapphire crystal. This combination of technology and style makes the Atmos line a striking adornment for any desk or mantelpiece.
Jaeger LeCoultre has pioneered the development of ultra-thin watches since 1903. For instance, its minimalist Master line embodies elegance by paring the timepiece down to its most essential features. Meanwhile, the Master Ultra Thin collection features precious metal cases under 10 millimeters thick and offset by rich alligator leather. Watches in the Master Line offer lightweight sophistication without sacrificing functionality. The Master Compressor line applies featherweight technology to make a distinctive line of chronographs. Each watch is water-resistant and extremely durable, even with a slimmer case profile.
The Reverso line was created in 1931 to withstand British officers’ polo matches. The Reverso watch uses clever functionality to protect the watch face against the harshest conditions: its square case flips to rest the face against the wrist and protect the crystal from any impact. The vintage-inspired silhouette of men's Reverso watches creates a streamlined, masculine look with stainless steel and rich leather. Meanwhile, rose gold and shimmering diamond-set bezels give a feminine touch to the sportiness of the ladies’ Reverso collection. Jaeger LeCoultre’s Polaris line is also athletically inspired. The clean lines of Polaris chronographs and watches recall the aesthetics of the 1968 Polaris Memovox, an iconic diving watch that was equipped with an alarm to remind divers to return to the surface.
Each Jaeger LeCoultre watch is produced with the utmost attention to quality and durability. As part of this commitment, Jaeger LeCoultre conducts a "1,000 Hour Test" tailored to each watch. The test certifies that the features of each timepiece—from the functioning of the mechanism to the watch’s resistance to falls, water, and aging—meet Jaeger LeCoultre’s exacting standards. This rigorous testing ensures that your Jaeger LeCoultre timepiece will become a life-long companion for decades to come.
